ffmpeg lacks UDP output speed smoothing functionality. You can see in
libavformat/udp.c in circular_buffer_task() that data is output as
soon as it appears. To eliminate bursty output it is needed either to
patch ffmpeg or to substitute ffmpeg output facility with another
application's one, e.g. you could do
ffmpeg (...options...) -f mpegts - | pv -L $BITRATE | socat (...options...)
